Golden body with a robust tan head that leaves nice lacing. Complex nose with grapefruit and pine jumping out, mellowing to some subtle malty sweetness. Fairly full mouthfeel with decent carbonation. The flavor, much like the aroma, is multi-layered. Caramel and biscuit sweetness give way to some sour citrus and a touch of bitter grapefruit. The aftertaste is appropriately bitter. A very nice American Pale Ale.

Muddy orange color with big white head. Aroma is piney-hoppy, some milk, mint, butterscotch. Taste is spicy, hoppy, bready malts, slightly bitter finish. Ok, but not my favourite.

Maakun (2056) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear golden with short lasting white head that leaves some nice little islands. Very flowery, soap, milk, basil, mint, grass. Lots of fresh herbal notes, but with a musty malt base. Light sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with slick feel.

77ships (6195) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2015
355 ml. bottle. BBF 06/2017. Clear golden, touch orange, decent creamy white head. Nose is dull oily, grainy, stale citrus candy, butterscotch, oily, faintly mineral, old bread. Grainy, dull bread, oily, old stale candy, touch butterscotch, little hop, rather bland, bread, light dried orange, mineral, lightly metallic. Carb is a dash high. Pretty dull & lacking much character. Anchor dates way, way back (oldest still functioning USA specialty brewer if I am not mistaken), they were craft before craft existed & this recipe appears to date back to 1975. They deserve points for many things, unfortunately this one comes across as dull & touch lacking compared to modern varieties. It tastes actually a bit like an old bottle of a newer style USA specialty beer despite being quite fresh looking at the BBF date.

Aroma: hoppy, pine, resin, some zest. Taste: dry with moderate bitterness. Flavour: pine, citrus, light malts. Bitter dry aftertaste. Very pleasant and not too complex. Good anyway.

5.9%abv. Purchased in Hippo Beer, West End. Great aroma; nice bread and alcohol mixed. Golden colour and frothy head. Balanced taste, however the alcohol taste is too heavy. Thin texture and average carbonation and abrupt finish.
